Dione in approximate true color
Filed under Dione, pretty pictures, Cassini, amateur image processing, global views, Saturn's moons
Cassini took the images for this mosaic of Dione on December 24, 2005. Infrared, green, and ultraviolet images have been processed to make the mosaic resemble Dione's approximate true color. In between larger craters, Dione's plains are very smooth, indicating a possible history of volcanism. Chasms and chains of craters are also evidence for an interesting geologic history.
